Posted (edited)

I was torn on this so withdrew this earlier in the week, I'm now certain I want to part with it, it's also going on eBay for a few hundred quid more so I don't expect it to stick around for long. I have another bass to pay for so I will not be lowering the price. Please don't ask and don't wait around if you want it expecting me to lower the price it won't happen. 


Alembic Brown Bass from 2002 In perfect, as new condition. 

30.75" scale

Anniversary Electronics (cable provided)
In original case - again in perfect, as new condition

Set up with D'Addario 45-105 rounds 
Walnut facings with myrtle core - beautiful figuring and flame in both. The neck is 5 piece and constructed from mahogany, birch and maple - the neck is slender and great to play. The bass has a rubbed oil finish throughout
Brass and ebony string retainer - unusual and lovely feature found on the BB and only a few other early models

 plays beautifully with a low action. No paperwork (this wasn't supplied though the bass is entirely legitimate and registered with Alembic). Comes with adjustment tools, guarantee card and manual.

A new one has a pricing of around £9k
the only trade I am interested in is a non-tatty Wal 4 string so nothing else, please this is a £9000 bass 

I would like it gone this weekend, you are welcome to pay upfront and collect later if you can't make it this weekend to Brighton, or i can UPS it within the UK and europe .. and absolutely no try before your buy i dont have the time ..Thanks

      In fully working condition and in excellent overall condition.
       
      Here are the specifications :

      Pickup : Alembic AXY4 (like on the Stanley Clarke model)
      Preamp : Alembic low-pass filter with Q switch

      Non-smoking environment as usual.
       
      I'm only selling this bass because I'm thinning down the herd and even if it's a terrific bass (that neck pickup is just bloody awesome), the 32 inches scale and narrow string spacing at the bridge is always bothering me a bit.
       
      Here is the link to this very Alembic Spoiler specs : http://alembic.com/club/messages/394/67053.html?1282867280
       
      And here, a link to a video demo make by the crazy adorable Johnny LONG : 
       
      The bass has been fully set up professionally by Christophe LEDUC. It has a new battery and is fitted with a brand new set of Alembic CX-3/45L compression wound nickel steel alloy strings (45 - 65 - 80 - 105), which really fit the bass to perfection.
        What you see is what you get !
       
      Look at the pictures taken under different angles to see the real condition : almost in new condition with some very few scratches, the most "important" ones being on the lower side on the edge near the electronics.
       
      Don't hesitate to ask for more.
